This is a popular introduction, aimed at general readers, to prayer and the spiritual life in the tradition of Ignatius Loyola. A deep prayer life is not just something for mystics or religious specialists. It's for everyone, and everyone has a capacity for it. There is a great thirst for spiritual depth among Christians and seekers. This is a popular introduction to prayer and the spiritual life - a guide for Lent and the rest of the year - in the tradition of Ignatius Loyola. Simmonds also explores Ignatian influence on the life of the seventeenth-century Yorkshire woman, Mary Ward. The Ignatian tradition is hugely adaptable to different approaches. At its heart is personal encounter with Jesus, so The Way of Ignatius will help people to pray with the Scriptures in an imaginative way. It includes questions to aid reflection and discussion at the end of each chapter, and also looks at the way in which the Passion and resurrection of Jesus are woven into the patterns of human life.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The journeys, struggles and insights of two great spiritual pilgrims--Ignatius Loyola and Mary Ward--are skillfully woven together here to invite today's pilgrims into their own Ignatian adventure. Gemma Simmonds' own knowledge and love of both of these wise guides shines through these pages as she offers us a map for our own journey that is deeply grounded, practical and real. An excellent and very readable companion through Lent, and far beyond."--Margaret Silf, author and spiritual explorer
"Learning to pray by drawing on contemplation is vital today to be able to discern God's speaking through the details of our lives. To sustain a depth of faith in our challenging world, we need forms of prayer that maintain a rich and deeply nourishing spiritual life infused with the love of God. In this wonderful book, Gemma Simmonds explores and unpacks the method of prayer developed by St Ignatius in a way that makes the profound approach of the Jesuits accessible to those who want to be serious about their prayer lives. I highly recommend this book if you are hungry and seeking to encounter and discover God in a deeper way."--Ian Mobsby, Anglican priest, writer, speaker and Prior, Wellspring New Monastic Community, London
"If you are looking for insightful and encouraging spiritual reading for Lent (or any other time), you have found your book! Grounding the spiritual in the practicable, Gemma Simmonds invites us to be pilgrims in the company of Jesus, Ignatius and Mary Ward. Learning from them along the way, we discover our own path to greater faith, hope and love."--Kevin O'Brien SJ, author of The Ignatian Adventure, dean of Jesuit School of Theology, Santa Clara University
